To say Thandaza from SABC 2 soapie Muvhango is a liked character is an understatement, she is loved. She is possibly till today since the show started, the reason why a lot of people tune into the soapie.

Actress Sindi Dlathu who plays the character says as rewarding as it is and as much as she loves playing Thandaza, it comes with its challenges. "I play a sad character, and the mind doesn't know this is just an act because I have to immerse myself into it. The sad thing is that sometimes we never really come out of it," she tells BONA magazine.

Sinai adds that what helps her is her training as a professional actress; "Because we are trained performers. we tell ourselves that we're out of it; yet the body won't be. Most of us, therefore suffer from fatigue, and it has symptoms of depression," Sindi adds.

Catch Sindi as Thandaza on Muvhango every week day at 9pm on SABC 2.
